About

This multi-disciplinary Architecture course, offered by University of East London, analyses the impact of capitalist neoliberalism on development. It examines neoliberal policies over the last 30 years and their effects on urban layout, property markets, architectural form and social justice. The Architecture programme is delivered by University of East London.

Overview

The Architecture course, offered by University of East London, is comprised of four modules: Reading the Neoliberal City; Psychogeography and Situationism; Ethical Development and the Digital City. Topics for study include the housing crisis and the privatisation of cities, investigating the financialisation of the urban environment, polarisation and the consequences for citizens in terms of trust and fear. The modules on Ethical Development and the Digital City focus on potential alternatives to the neoliberal city. 

Architecture at UEL is based in our Docklands campus, in a pioneer area for neoliberal development and a key study site for the course. But while London is the focus, the global impact of these processes, which are relevant across the world, provides the context.

Your future career

Any practitioner contemplating a part-time or full-time career in teaching would benefit from this course.

Existing academic staff on fractional contracts within built environment programmes will also benefit from a sound academic writing qualification that is valued by universities.

This course is designed to gives the opportunity to enhance your current thinking, writing and communication skills to a level suitable to commence doctoral study for a PhD.

The precision this requires is an asset in the professional marketplace, and by focussing the themes of urban regeneration and the political mechanisms of the city, the course delivers invaluable insights into urban practice.

Through active participation in the course, you will acquire critical insights and practical experiences of urban regeneration in its widest sense.

As part of UEL's Place Production Research Group, we aim to be Britain's leading centre for critical thinking about cities. Our programme of research for the coming academic year includes a one day conference on the housing crisis, co hosted with Birkbeck and the academic journal City. 

Our partners also include Guardian Cities, the Cities website of The Guardian newspaper and The Chisenhale Gallery in Mile End, East London.
